A PBS station in Carbondale, Illinois, recently aired a thirty-minute feature on EVTV and the Electric Vehicle Conversion Convention (EVCCON) that two tinkerers sponsored in 2011.
EVTV is the video Bible of the EV building generation. Every week, the hosts of this “video magazine,” Jack Rickard and Brian Noto, crank out highly technical videos about their EV conversions. Their opus amounts to an in-depth video course on how to build your own EV.
Recently, the videographers themselves became the subject of a video, as WSIU, a PBS station in Carbondale, Illinois, aired a thirty-minute feature on EVTV and the Electric Vehicle Conversion Convention (EVCCON) that the two tinkerers sponsored in 2011.
In the video, the highly entertaining Mr Rickard discusses the advantages of EVs, and explains how the advent of lithium-ion batteries in the last three years has made the current explosion of EV activity possible. A veteran of the late-90s Internet boom, Rickard sees the same passion and sense of adventure in today’s EV scene.
We see plenty of footage of the vehicles EVTV and friends are working on in the Cape Girardeau, Missouri garage, ranging from a Porsche 911 to some classic roadsters to a hulking pickup truck, and we also hear the pitches of several of the EVCCON exhibitors.
